The Lite widget keeps saying that last update was 8 days ago. But the laptop is updated.

The Lite Widget keeps aying that it is 9 days since last update. But when i run updates there arent any, so why keeps the Lite Widget telling me that the last time the laptop was updated was 9 days ago?

The Help Manual explains this. 9 days ago was when your computer last got update packages. Next time update packages are available and installed, the status will change.

killall -9 conky
Code: [Select]
bash -c "sleep 5; ~/.conky/start"
Let it run for 10 minutes then paste the output here.
